    "Pretty good program"

    April 4, 2010  |   By Sheafferkin

    Pros

    Locks the keyboard, mouse, touchpad, power button.

    Cons

    Interferes with Standby/Sleep mode on two different computers.

    Summary

    First came across this program when I was using a WinME desktop exclusively. Can't remember if I ever used it there, but...

    On my XP laptop it tended to disable the key combination that put the computer into Standby mode, requiring me to go into the control panel-->power saver settings and reset that feature.

    On my new Windows 7 laptop, after running the program once last night, and then typing 'quit', it seemed to work fine. However, after closing the lid and leaving the computer for a while I had to reboot to get my computer fully out of sleep mode. What happened when I opened the lid was, instead of waking up, the screen displayed the mouse pointer in the middle of a black screen. Since this is a new computer, I started to worry that there was already some kind of hideous error that would require me to contact the manufacturer. After a few unsuccessful attempts at getting the computer to wake up, I remembered I'd run Toddler Keys earlier in the evening and decided to try shutting the computer down via the power button. When I started it back up, everything was normal again.

    I like this program, but this little bug is frustrating. Would give it a 5-star rating otherwise. As it is, I took off one star.
